The ROUSH® Edition (starting at an MSRP of $37,349) represents the first-ever cross-branded Slingshot and touts the perfect blend of style and performance. Built upon the Slingshot R platform, the Slingshot ROUSH® Edition packs the 203-horsepower ProStar engine, but adds premium componentry, including Brembo® Brakes with exclusive slotted rotors, a Slingshot Excursion Top, Sparco® Pedal Covers, and an exclusive race car-inspired steering wheel with color accents. See below for more details on the key features and premium upgrades.

  • Slingshot’s Excursion Top has an integrated toolless install and easy removal soft top with improved driver headroom and visibility, the Excursion Top provides added luxury, comfort, style and shade with race-car style cues.
  • Brembo® Brakes provide unrivaled stopping power, the four-piston Brembo® brakes come standard on the ROUSH® Edition.
  • Premium Billet Pedal Covers by Sparco® offer improved performance, the Pedal Covers by Sparco® provides better foot grip and fits the racing-inspired theme throughout the vehicle.
